The ground is starting to thaw and the air is getting back that moist smell of mud and life. Spring is (almost) here. We made it. Now here are some tunes to help you shake off the lingering effects of hibernation...
My music listening habits tend to follow seasonal trends and, true to form, in Spring my musical palette expands to embrace the vibrancy of the season. Lush pop sounds and grand statements are what I gravitate towards, and you'll see that reflected in the Spring Mixtape. Following the arc of spring, Side A is alternately anthemic and introspective and Side B is a blast of pure summery fun.
Comprised of almost all brand new or unreleased songs, there should be something new here for everyone. Enjoy the tunes, let me know what you think in the comments and please share with friends!
